Negotiate – Impact of economic crisis on youth and early job insecurity

1. Negotiate at the innovative Youth Expo in Bulgaria

2. Concluding Conference under the NEGOTIATE project

Scarred Youth – What Can the EU Do?’

The Concluding Conference of the NEGOTIATE project was held on December and 5, 2017, at Norway House in Brussels. The two-day programme included a variety of sessions and provided discussion at a high level of expertise between over 130 researchers, European Parliament deputees from the political left, right and center, members of civic organizations, members of the European Commission, and youths from different countries. The participants exchanged opinions and policy recommendations for dealing with youth unemployment and overcoming the consequences of the economic crisis in Europe.  

Prof. Rumiana Stoilova, Director of ISSK-BAS, presented a discussion of some of the impacts of marginalization on the labour market, stressing gender-based and ethnicity-based differences identified through interviews with young people from seven countries. The opinions of young people were also made evident in selfies they had made and presented. Direct questions coming from youths set the start of the conference discussions. The Bulgarian project team at the conference was also represented by three more scholars: Prof. Pepka Boyadjieva, Dr Gabriela Yordanova, and Dr Veneta Krasteva. The Bulgarian participants also included Stefan Markov (Job Tiger TV) and Kaloyan Tsvetkov (Bulgarian Youth Forum).
